really liked it
Read in January, 2008

** spoiler alert ** This was a book about a girl, not unlike many, who has very low self esteem and will do just about anything to belong. She lets the people around her take advantage of her and run all over her. This was very aggrivating, but true in many cases. I was most angered by the way her 'lover' treated her. What an Ahole! What an idiot! People like him urk me! They think they know it all and 'need no one' but to use them. The book was an okay read but I was not happy how things were left unsaid in the end. It also made me feel as tho there may be a part II. Which I don't think there is...which is a jip. I had hoped to see a successful ending on this nameless girl's part. I did not. Simply a book about a girl and her never ending hard life. hmmmm...
